Airmail Pilot William C. Hopson models pilots’ winter flying gear. Hopson was one of the hardest-working airmail pilots, logging 413,034 miles and over four thousand hours in the sky. In 1921 he submitted a photograph of himself to the Department’s Airmail Service, along with a note: “Enclosed please find photo of bum pilot . . . When finished with picture just post in cellar, it’s guaranteed to keep away all rats, mice and other vermin.”

We'd much rather have a refrigerator than an "ice box." Look at that hunk of ice! Click through for more fridge history.
1920's icebox. wow, my parents were old enough to remember this. The fridge back then was called the ICE BOX, cause it was. When my sister & I were little we called it that, too; up until other kids laughed at us for saying "ice box" instead of the fridge. See what happens when you have like really old parents, lol, ha ha ; )
